    Does anyone somewhere has ever done drag and drop objects from one window to other window in a browser?
    The context is: I have a list of icons representing modules in a floating non modal window which I can select one and drag drop into its parent window to create an instance of this module.
    I know that the selecting icon event should generate an event into its parent window to create an instance of the dragging object.
    But is it possible to pass the control of the mouse to the parent window?

    Or this king of functionality already exists in your controls!

    Hello Maurice,

    When implementing such logic, you must have in mind that RadWindow's content page is a separate page, different from the main one.
    Our suggestion is to implement the desired behavior not by using initially RadWindow but a standard IFRAME (RadWindow itself is basically an IFRAME) - once you have your code working as expected, the same logic will work with RadWindow as well.

    I know this original thread is old, but I have the same question so perhaps this answer will help others.

    I'm using Telerik WebUI VSExtensions  2010.03.1109.0. I have been trying to figure out how to drag a control from a RadWindow (acting as a tools pallet) onto my main form.  I discovered that by creating a RadWindow with RadDocks in a RadLayout, I was able to drag a dock from the RadWindow onto my main form.

    The main form has a button which opens a RadWindow containing controls.  The window is defined in the main form within a window manager as shown below.  I am able to drag the controls from the RadWindow into the RadLayout on the main form.  This is as close to drag & drop of controls as I have managed to get so far using RadWindows.

    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager1" runat="server" Skin="Outlook" >
                <telerik:RadWindow ID="RadWindow1" Width="500" Height="500" runat="server" Modal="True" OpenerElementID="RadButton4" Title="Customize" DestroyOnClose="True">
                    <telerik:RadDockLayout ID="RadDockLayout2" Runat="server" OnSaveDockLayout="RadDockLayout1_SaveDockLayout" OnLoadDockLayout="RadDockLayout1_LoadDockLayout" EnableViewState="False">
                        <telerik:RadDockZone ID="RadDockZone4" Runat="server" Orientation="Vertical" Width="300px" Skin="Outlook" BorderWidth="1"  FitDocks="True" BorderColor="Black" BorderStyle="Solid" EnableViewState="False">
                            <telerik:RadDock ID="RadDock1" Runat="server" Skin="Outlook"
                                Title="Notes" Width="295px" Height="250px" Resizable="True" DockMode="Docked" BorderWidth="2" BorderColor="Black" >
                                    <telerik:RadTextBox ID="RadTextBox1" runat="server" EmptyMessage="(Empty)" TextMode="MultiLine" Width="265px" Height="2000px" ></telerik:RadTextBox>
                            <telerik:RadDock ID="RadDock4" Runat="server" Skin="Outlook" Text="Those who are interested do what's convenient, those who are committed do what it takes. "
                            Title="Quote" Width="295px" Resizable="True" Height="100px" DockMode="Docked" BorderWidth="2" BorderColor="Black">

    Hello Steve

    Could you possibly share the code that opens up a non-modal RadWindow from a parent radwindow?  Can this non-modal window be dragged outside of the parent?

    Thanks, Raka
